Indiana officially has two state flags, because after law adopted the new flag in 1955, the law of 1901 adopting the Stars and Stripes was never repealed. Paul Hadley’s design won yet another state flag competition run by the Daughters of the American Revolution in 1916. His design is yellow on a blue field, with the Liberty Torch in the center. Thirteen stars representing the original states outline the design, with another five stars representing the next five states admitted in an inner circle. Atop the torch is a larger star with the name Indiana above it.
Our state flags are made from 200-denier, 100% SolarGuard nylon. This heavyweight nylon material, developed especially for the flag industry, is engineered to resist damage from the sun’s UV rays and still fly briskly in the lightest breeze.
Why Annin Flags?
Annin Flagmakers has been one of the most trusted names in flagmaking since the 1820s. And that makes it one of the oldest and largest manufacturers in the country. But don’t just take our word for it: Annin flags flew at the inaugurations of every President from Zachary Taylor to George W. Bush. And it was an Annin flag that draped the coffin of President Abraham Lincoln. An Annin American flag, too, was selected by NASA as part of its Apollo 11 mission to the moon in 1969.
